Upgrade Cloud with Static Servers (from 6.5)

  • The support status of Xen changes to End of Support in OnApp 6.5. We will no longer develop features or provide full support for Xen compute resources in OnApp clouds. That is why we recommend you migrate your VSs from Xen to KVM
  • CentOS 6 reached End of Life and is no longer supported. You can upgrade to CentOS 7.
  • To test the upgrade, you may first simulate the upgrade process on the test environment. For the instructions, refer to the Configuring Control Panel Environment for Simulation Purposes page. 

This guide explains how to upgrade OnApp Cloud 6.5 to 6.6 for a cloud with static servers. Follow the procedure listed below in the provided order to upgrade your cloud. All the packages (Control Panel and Static compute resources) must belong to the same major version to ensure the best performance of your cloud.
